We have been travelling for 7 months thru africa and europe, and this was our best experience of the whole trip! Apologies for the late review. peter and monica were our guides and are deadset legends. Saw a family of rhino, giraffe, lots of antelope, rare sivet and tracked lion, and when we had morning tea after the game drive, a herd of maybe 30 elephants walked straight past the car! Saw lots of antelope on the walks, the african bush.is.fantastic. As is the lux camp tents, with hot outdoor (private) showers. And the lovely ladies put a hot water bottle in ur bed after the night drive! The food is homely and top shelf, all really lovley people, who care about nature, are know wat they are talking about. also met some great guests, who have similar views on the value of nature and real safari, not "stupid tourists" Very good value too. Cant wait to save up and come back to africa, and stay with these guys! Thanks so much! I may even join in the poo spitting contest next time peter! (its only impala poo guys, dont freak!)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Shindzela is an authentic tented bush camp situated in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, greater Kruger National Park. The camp accommodates a maximum of 16 guests and is unfenced, making it very much part of the wilderness. Shindzela is not built by an award winning architect, nor is it furnished by an interior designer. What you will find though, is a comfy bed, freshly laundered linen, and décor from local crafters and artists. Shindzela is a comfortable/rustic tented bush camp, where you can relax, enjoy our warm hospitality and immerse yourself in the African wilderness. We love our informal, relaxed atmosphere. Each safari tent is built on wooden decks, and has their own en-suite shower/toilet and hand basin. The camp also has a swimming pool and overlooks our little watering hole, from where you can watch animals come down to drink. ... more less
